Afro People's Journeys in Mexico

Dear Kari, there are many fascinating stories of Afro Mexicans both in Mexico and those who travelled northward to the U.S. Some of the more well-known are Juan Garrido (the first to cultivate wheat in the New World); Yanga (who led a maroon revolt near present-day Veracruz and negotiated the first Mexican treaty establishing an autonomous Afro Mexican settlement); and Andres and Pio Pico (General in the Mexican Army and last Mexican Governor of California). If you do an Internet search both on "Afro Mexican Bibliography" and "Afro Latino Bibliography"--you'll find many books and articles on the subject. Take care, Alva

Thanks AfroMex

I took your advice and did a search and found many nice photo's and articles. I'm really glad that through your research you found many Afro Mexicans are getting together to tell their story. This is good because so many times their presence is down played. And they are also apart of the afro diaspora. I am definantly going to do more reading and learning.

Thank you so much for sharing.

I'm Black on Destee, I feel at home! It's been a while! Soooo in 2004 I married my Senegalese Husband, when I first went to Senegal, I loved, it! The people were hospitable and my husband's family was very kind! Well I've been there many times now, have taken African Americans, well over 150 and it has been an amazing experience!
